baseline you used in september in your pledge to america. if we have gone 41 and we are going to go another 10 or 15, what i ask of you is in light of the fact, as mr. dent points out, we have already done the deepest cut under republicans, under democrats, under any of us. it is time to hear from you what is your alternative to make a deal? now, compromise is a prettier word, but we need to come to agreement. if we are going to serve our country and those who serve our country, then we need to come to agreement because they elected all of us. none of us has any greater superiority. we are all the same. and we need to come to agreement. i don't have much time but i'll be glad to yield to you. can you take time -- mr. rogers: would the gentleman talk to his colleagues over in the other body and tell them to pass something we can negotiate on? mr. hoyer: reclaiming my time, 435 of us have tried to talk to the people in the other body. but i will tell you under the constitution of the united states, we have the responsibility of initiating bills. read the constitution. read the constitution. w
. this is the new republican plan to go after budgets in america. this is exactly what republican governors like walker have always dreamed of. they've been on a mission to privatize public education for years so they can make money. republicans can't stand the fact that public education isn't about the almighty dollar. the demonization of public education in america, can we come it a conclusion tonight that this really has to stop? because we have to take a closer look at what we're doing to the future of our country? and it's all starting with the work force, isn't it? the teachers. got to go after them. let me remind americans tonight that nobody goes into teaching to get rich. they do it because they love helping people. they love the reward of seeing kids reach their potential. it takes a special person to be a teacher. but governors like walker want teachers to bear the burden of shared sacrifice. walker refused. he refused to raise taxes on the rich. but he wants to stick it to the teachers who average, don't let me knock you off the couch tonight, folks, a whopping $51,000 a year. it's n
are in it. we better be in it to win it. if there is doubt we get out. win it means gadhafi goes and america gets to get out of there. and let the people of why create their own government. choose their own leader. and america, no nation building, we get out, we take care of our affairs elsewhere. >> greta: one he steps down. two he goes into exile and leaves libya and three he is captured and stands trial and four he's killed. which should be the goal? >> i think gadhafi is going to end up dead through this mission. whether it is at the hands of the rebels who have turned on him. or whether it is at the hands of america and her allies as we are engaged in in no-fly zone. which again, seems to be turning into much more. i think at the end of the day gadhafi is not gonna go willingly. >> greta: is it a failure on our part if we turnover command and control to someone else to nato or france or whatever. and gadhafi is still in power s that a failure on our part? >> america will have failed. -- if we turnover command and control of this mission and the mission of ousting gadhafi is not fulfille
health association, the american thoracic society, the asthma and allergy foundation of america, the physicians for social responsibility, the trust for america's health, this is what they say about the mcconnell amendment. "the mcconnell amendment would strip away sensible clean air act protections that safeguard americans and their families from air pollution." who do we stand with? this is the question we all ask in our campaigns. who's side are you on? who do you stand with? so i've made a decision. a strong one. i'm going to stand with the kids. i'm going to stand with our families. i'm going to stand with these leaders who are working day and night just to protect our health. i'm not going to stand with a right-wing ideological amendment. i'm not going to stand with amendments that are mcconnel mcl light. because if it isn't broken, don't fix it. the e.p.a. -- no agency is perfect, we know that. the e.p.a. is not perfect. but the record is clear, the actions by the e.p.a., along with local and state officials have saved countless lives. and if we leave our hands off of it,
the obvious. america has to get its fiscal house in order. how we got here is debated but certain things are indisputable. we have two wars that have been paid for on the credit card. we had tax cuts that went to the high income americans that are on the credit card. we recently extended them at the cost of $700 billion to the deficit. we had irresponsible behavior on the part of wall street that required rescuing the financial system in america so that main street could fight and survive another day. and then that led to a collapse in the economy and 10% unemployment that required governmental action in order to try to stabilize the economy. we have a long way to go in restoring the economy, but that has to be our first mission. the republican proposal on how to address this budget in these continuing resolutions will fail. the reason it will fail is because it fails to do what must obviously be done if we're going to have long-term fiscal stability and that is put everything on the table. the cuts that are proposed by the republican majority, unwise as they are, cannot do the job. the

. at this point, america was in the throes of a cold war and our great nation was viewed with cynicism. the peace corps showed the world the enduring values of peace, commitment to national service and an optimism that had been lost in the cold war and world war ii. under the masterful direction of sargent shriver, it grew to 1,500 volunteers. i was one of those early recruits. i found myself in peace corps training and found myself in medellin, colombia. i saw the grinding cycles of poverty that left so many men, women and children without hope. i committed then to work to end the culture of poverty. it is in no small part due to that experience in the peace corps that i am standing here in the congress. yes, i will yield. mr. dreier: i'd like to con gradge late my friend for his service in the peace corps. he not only served then but he continues to share that with us today and as we deal with countries around the world, the peace corps has been very important and i'm happy to recognize their 50th anniversary. mr. farr: thank you, mr. dreier. over the past 50 years, the peace corps has shown th

. three major areas of concern emerged from the discussion. the america invents act addresses each one of them. first, there is significant concern about delays in pat tent application process. pat tent and trademark office, p.t.o., currently has a backlog of more than 700,000 unexamined patent applications. now, there are several reasons for this, not the least of which is the p.t.o. is overwhelmed with patent applications and doesn't have the resources necessary to get through that backlog. the director of the p.t.o. obvious says that the next great invention that's going to drive our economic recovery may be waiting on a shelf waiting to be granted. our act will authorize the p.t.o. to set its fees. we want them to work through the backlog, we want them to be current. and i want to commend austin goodwills bee, the chair of the president's economic advisors. his speech on the importance of patent reform show that we need it to help america win the global competition and create jobs. we should be doing all we can to help the p.t.o. director. now, it makes no sense that it takes two y

neighborhoods in the northeast waterfront associated with the potential and upcoming america's cup, are there the challenges of the ceqa and anything along the waterfront that basically becomes a stumbling block for what is a timeline that has a deadline that has no need for a hiccup? >> this is an excellent point. of course, the city is embarking on environmental review for activities related to the america's cup, not being intimately familiar with what the proposal is or what the level of review is, i can't speak to the details, but certainly we are compelled again under state law to examine the range of potential impacts, if there are any, from the america's cup and prepare a suitable document. i would say that experience would suggest that whatever level of review, whatever document is produced would be subject to review by third parties. my colleagues in other agencies may speak to later, there are avenues for appeal to the board of supervisors and subsequent opportunities to revisit the issue through the courts. with respect to the northeast waterfront, my apologies, i'm not
